We are close to signing a striker according to the echo, the signings that Tommy makes will shape our season.

I know they are not exactly local, but expect Liverpool will release Karius who could keep our bench warm as second string keeper.
Also hear that Bale wants regular start in first team and could be an ideal replacement for Turnbull, even if he is getting on a bit.

Have you not read the Turnbull thread - he doesn’t score goals so not sure how a Bale could replace him... :silent:

Wonder if we covered our costs on that one?
IMO we are better without someone who never really seemed to have his heart in DFC :wave:

He’s signed after being a free agent so unfortunately no fee was involved.

I'd have been surprised given his form, if he would have commanded any fee, even if he was still on a contract with us. I think it's best for all concerned if he's moved on. Probably one of TW's only failures in the transfer market.

.
Think TW was giving the lad a chance and given his experience was right to take a bit of a gamble that Mills could recapture his form, but it never came off. At least Mills won't be a drain on our wages / travel expense budget. Sound decision to let him go, but squad is now looking a bit small so over to TW to bring in reinforcements. I look forward to TW bringing in some new blood to replace recent departures.

Seems to have quite impressively converted to a striker in his late twenties and been quite prolific since doing so!

He looks the sort of versatile player we should be going after.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Look at Styche’s tweets and it may get your hopes up even further

Would be some signing if true, great record at Harrogate and not sure what happened when he left.Think he went to Wrexham and not heard much since but would settle for him coming without a doubt.Come onTommy.

Even a misery guts like me would get excited if this happened.

He did have a bad injury last season, went to Wrexham on loan who then changed managers so he barely played. By all accounts he came back too quickly from the injury so wasn't ready.

But his record in the previous seasons is excellent.

Quakerz is currently trawling Google Images for signs of a company called Ainge.

The good thing about Ainge of course is that if we're running a smaller squad he could be used at the back if we have an injury crisis. Styche could play on his own again with Syers/Hughes in the hole.

Seems to be enough clues to put two and two together on this one, looks like we will know/confirm soon enough.

Sounds like he's got a good pedigree, it would certainly beef up the frontline.

If you want to 'beef up' the front line Pete, need to look at Dexter Blackstock.

Richard Peniket signs for Alfreton from Gateshead. Probably not someone who would have fitted into our plans if we are moving to more of a 4-4-2 but a decent signing for them non the less.

Heath assembling plenty of the team that fought their way out of the division with Halifax. Another team that could be in the mix for playoff places.

I don't think that Billy Health's scouting network goes beyond players from teams he has previously managed.

Back on to our targets (specifically goalkeepers), I see Cameron Belford has been released by Forest Green Rovers (Leicester based).

James Talbot is also being linked with a move to Shamrock Rovers, so might not be available to us this summer.

Don't think we've got a chance in keeping Pears, as I think Boro will want him to play higher for his development.

I also see Luke George has been released by Hartlepool. Has a bit of a reputation as being a non-nonsense, kick everything defensive midfielder. Would be what we need.
